La Boheme at Mrs Macquaries Chair

Be transported, not only by the operatic performance, but by a breathtaking view of Sydney’s iconic harbour.

Handa Opera on the Harbour is back again, this time bringing the iconic grandeur of La Boheme to life.

Running until April 22, this is more than just a chance to experience the stunning music of Puccini performed by some of the world’s most talented musicians, but also to see Sydney’s incredible Harbour as an unparalleled grand stage.

Sitting at Lady Macquaries Chair, you will witness the lights of Sydney, the Sydney Opera House and the Harbour Bridge glow in the background as the performance takes place on a floating stage in front of you.

Handa Opera has proven to be one of Sydney’s jewels in the crown – an artistic risk that has turned into an iconic event that attracts even those who have no interest in the opera.

Set in 19th Century France, La Boheme tells the story of Rodolfo – played by the incredible Ho-Yoon Chung – who falls in love with the seamstress Mimi, performed by Iulia Maria Dan.

Add a dash of poverty, tragedy (off course, it’s opera), and jealousy and you have a night you’ll never forget.

La Boheme, brought to you by Handa Opera, is now showing at Lady Macquaries Chair until April 22.
